Reader's Diary (week 4)

men are forced to admire Us, love Us, and be desirous of Us; insomuch that rather than not have and enjoy Us, they will deliver to Our disposals their power, persons, and lives, enslaving themselves to Our will and pleasures; also, We are their saints, whom they adore and worship; and what can We desire more than to be men’s Tyrants, Destinies, and Goddesses?
(Cavendish, 1662)
